Josh Duhamel to return for Transformers: The Last Knight
Following the announcement yesterday of the official title for Transformers 5 as Transformers: The Last Knight, Paramount Pictures has confirmed that actor Josh Duhamel will reprise his role of Lieutenant Colonel Lennox. Duhamel appeared in the first three films in the franchise but did not appear in the fourth.
The Transformers: The Last Knight cast also includes the return of Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg as Cade Yeager as well as newcomer Isabela Moner (100 Things to Do Before High School, Growing Up Fisher) as the film’s female lead, Izabella. Jerrod Carmichael (The Carmichael Show, Neighbors) is also set to play an unspecified leading role.
Production on Transformers: The Last Knight is set to begin June 6 in Detroit with production planned to take place at various locations around the world.
Michael Bay returns to the director’s chair for the film, which is set to be written by Iron Man scribes Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (Black Hawk Down). Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto will produce the sequel.
Combined, the previous four Transformers films have brought in over $3.7 billion at the global box office with 2014’s Age of Extinction the second-highest grossing in the series. Current plans call for Transformers: The Last Knight to be released on June 23, 2017. It will be followed by a Bumblebee spin-off film in 2018 before Transformers 6 arrives in 2019.
